Math + Motion highlights the connection between math and art, providing an opportunity for kids to explore math concepts at their own pace.
“The museum is all about incorporating math and science and art principles together. They’re not isolated concepts, so this is a great way to explore how they fit together,” said Katie Edinger, Senior Public Programs Manager at the DuPage Children’s Museum.
The exhibit includes math-related artworks paired with interactive activities focusing on tessellation, patterns in music, quilting and geometric patterns.
“We’ve brought in some beautiful pieces of artwork, prints my M.C. Escher, by Faith Ringgold, our Klee print and find math concepts in those and then find a fun way to explore those themes,” added Edinger.
This yearlong exhibit teaches math concepts to early learners in a fun and innovative way.
The children’s museum is currently on their summer schedule – open weekdays 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Saturdays until 5 p.m., and Sundays 12 p.m. to 5 p.m.
